Happy Birthday Ada Lovelace! #SaturdayMorningCartoons
Ada Lovelace’s 200th birthday was December 10th. Happy Birthday, Ada! via actoutgames
Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer back in the 1800s. She published the first computer program, before the first computer had even been built! December 10th, 2015 is Ada’s 200 birthday! So let’s all wish her a happy birthday and learn more about her and other great topics in computer science during Computer Science Education Week.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
